Spring Lookbook 2017 : How to Pair Classics with fun Trends to Create an Envy-worthy Wardrobe (Pt. 1)

"Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It's a gift to the world and every being in it. Don't cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you've got." ~ Steven Pressfield

Hey hey sweetie pies! The Spring season is well underway and the world is filled with pollen and climbing temps - well at least that's the case here in Houston. As always, I have a lookbook here for your inspiration and shopping pleasure. For this season's lookbook, I wanted to focus on incorporating seasonal trends with timeless classics. I also wanted to showcase how you can incorporate timeless trends such as pastels in Spring and pair with current trends such as metallic. As always, I have linked the items or similar below each look. Since I love you guys (and lookbooks) so much, I am doing a 2 part series for this season! That's right, I will be doing a second part that will be coming to the blog in the next week or so. :) But for the meantime, enjoy!

For this first look, you may already have a bag in a nice neutral color. I decided to use that as the base for this outfit. This in turn created a soft feminine vibe - great for a wedding or brunch even.

Who doesn't own a pair of aviators these days? Instead of doing a casual or rocker look, I opted for this jumpsuit that has a nice sweetheart hemline and a fun cutout at the torso. Plus it cinches in at the waist to flatter your figure. Throw on some fun jewelry and lace up booties and you are set!

Turkish Delight Multi-Row Necklace
This look is for all of my girly girls out there. From the accessories to the delicacy of this lace blouse, you are definitely giving IT Girl vibes! Plus this color combo is perfect for Spring!

Parisian Belle Statement Ring
I am a huge fan of this look. Off the shoulder is everywhere this Spring season! Jump on the trend bandwagon in this gorgeous all white romper! This look is perfect to wear on vacation while these gorgeous jewels catch the sunlight. It pairs perfectly with a tan as well! Use neutral colored shoes and bag to let your other accessories do the talking. :)

Bun Cuff
Embroidery is so much fun and helps give a worldly look! White and powder blue are a timeless pair together but opt to throw in another color such as coral for an unexpected twist! The jewelry pairs perfect with the clothes as well as the shoes!

Hair accessories - SOLD OUT

This look is great for those who like to add a feminine flair every once in a while but is all about her edgy pieces. Having a pair of black jeans and simple heels are a staple in any wardrobe. To create a little juxtaposition, opt for a sheer floral blouse with a floral embroidered bag. Keep jewelry to a minimum and if you want to take it up a notch, opt for this delicate handpiece. I guarantee you it will be a conversation starter.

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.




To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
